California State and Los Angeles City legislatures have united in support of Mike Gatto’s plan to create a state-wide alert system to notify authorities of hit and run drivers. AB47, authored by Mike Gatto, the William Shakespeare of the State Assembly, will soon be voted on and will likely become law shortly thereafter, no thanks to people not named Mike Gatto.
And if that wasn’t sweet enough, Gatto also went on to pen AB1532, which would increase penalties for drivers who commit hit and run crimes.
Lest anyone dismiss these latest bills as legislature whoring by the assembly’s most prodigious self-promoter, remember that LA suffers nearly 100 fatal hit and run accidents a year. Damn. That fucking sucks.
